[R] lmer and handling heteroscedasticity

Dear altogether,

is it possible to integrate "weights" arguments within lmer to incorporate statements to handle heteroscedasticity as it is possible with lme?
I searched the R-archive but found nothing, insofer I assume it is not possible, but as lmer is under heavy develpoment, maybe something changed or is solved differently.

Thus my question:

While encountering heavy heteroscedasticity within data, lmer is not the right application to use, but use instead lme?

Thanks in advance for a short statement,

best ,
